Applied Chemistry
(Bachelor of Engineering, 128 credits)

Applied ChemistryIn Applied Chemistry, the creation of materials with structure and functions controlled at atomic and/or molecular levels is studied, with the goal of contributing to the sustainable growth of human society and environmental conservation. In this program, we provide an advanced education in chemistry which can be applied to various fields, including IT, environmental sciences, nanotechnology and biotechnology, and cover a range of materials from organic, inorganic to biomolecules.

Student Voice

(Enrolled in 2020, Applied Chemistry)
Studying in the IUPE program has been an incredibly intellectually challenging yet tremendously rewarding experience. Courses here are designed with a good balance between professional knowledge and practical experiences. The small capacity of classes offers you intimate relationships with classmates and allows you to gain individual attention from world-renowned professors. Multidisciplinary courses, professional faculty, the vibrant international community, and laboratory with advanced equipment – all in the IUPE program – are only a few of the countless reasons I would recommend IUPE applied chemistry to anyone who is seeking to gain a solid understanding in the field of chemistry.

(Enrolled in 2016, Applied Chemistry)
Having the opportunity to study applied chemistry of the IUPE course has been and is an absolute privilege. Not only that I am taught about the theories and basics of chemistry, I also have had the chance to do first-hand experiments and operating instruments for chemical analysis. Moreover, I have had the opportunity of being able to learn from prominent and world-famous professors from whom I was updated on the recent and significant developments in the field of applied chemistry. These kinds of information and support have been very helpful for me to further pursue my interest in chemistry and develop my future career.
